Hacking on GitLab - Getting the Development VM Running
The other day I decided to hack around on GitLab a little more and tweak some things to my liking. For example, I enabled more GitHub-like public repos in GitLab with this commit. To get a dev environment setup, I used the GitLab Vagrant VM, which is the officially recommended environment for GitLab development by the GitLab dev team. Unfortunately, there were some problems with the setup as of April 22, 2012. With a lot of tinkering around, I was finally able to get it working. Here’s a gist containing everything I had to do to get it up and running. Sorry, I would embed the gist, but this template style really messes with the gist styling and makes it useless. Maybe time to swith templates.
